- Still having problems seeing any new comments. Sorry. Refunds are in the mail.
- My head nearly exploded last night when Fox 4 opened its newscast announcing it had a "panel of experts" available to answer Swine Flu questions. Cut to a bunch of serious looking folks at a phone bank answering questions (wait . . . the show started 15 seconds ago so how are they already fielding questions?)
- Call me a wuss, but I'm not sure I'd let my kid play high school football. (This prompted after seeing a story of a 14 year old Pinkston player who is paralyzed from the waist down.)
- I've been jogging outside almost exclusively lately completely abandoning my old treadmill.
- I actually saw a TV ad for a better mouse trap this morning. Little sucker just crawls into a contraption and the door shuts behind him.
- I know I'm in the minority with my eye rolling over the "Dallas Terrorist". The best line from the probable cause hearing yesterday, as reported by the Dallas Observer blog, was that FBI Special Agent Thomas Petrowski testified, "Mr. Smadi stood out because he indicated that he was on U.S. soil and wished to commit an act of terrorism here ... that the only thing he lacked was the tools." Hey, he was a bad guy. But he was a wannabe.
- And Channel 5's Mike "I Love You Jane" Snider reported yesterday evening that "video has now been released" of the Dallas terrorist being stopped on a traffic stop about a month ago. Fox 4 had that video three weeks ago.
- When radio guys say a particular lineman or defensive lineman (someone you normally don't pay attention to) "had a good game," I call BS. The only way you know that is if (1) you watched him every play and (2) you knew what his responsibility on each play.
- I don't really know much about the Dallas City Council corruption trial other than to say Defendant Don Hill was way too cocky during the trial. (He was found guilty.)
- Am I getting grumpier?
- I looked at Google Trends last night and saw one of the top searches was "Steve Perry Journey Dead." A little searching discovered that Journey had appeared on Oprah that afternoon with the new Asian lead singer which prompted everyone to wonder if Steve Perry had died.
- He hasn't.
- That Asian guy sounds just like Steve Perry.
- The Star Telegram's Clarence Hill says Fox 4 has a video proving that Tony Romo did not know it was 4th down on the last play of the game last Sunday. I'm trying to track down that video. Edit: They've posted it.
- I always see a commercial for show with some chef yelling at everybody. Uh, why would I want to watch that?
